renewal of licenses are required every 40 years for an Independent 
Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) or CoC effective May 21, 2011, 
and every 40 years for a Monitored Retrievable Storage (MRS) facility.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Certificate holders and 
applicants for a CoC for spent fuel storage casks; licensees and 
applicants for a license to possess power reactor spent fuel and other 
radioactive materials associated with spent fuel storage in an ISFSI; 
and the Department of Energy for licenses to receive, transfer, package 
and possess power reactor spent fuel, high-level waste, and other 
radioactive materials associated with spent fuel and high-level waste 
storage in an MRS.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 76.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 69,065.7 hours (27,630.7 reporting + 38,683.0 recordkeeping
